These papers are made from 100% long fibred cotton rag (offcuts of pure woven cotton), at Khadi Papers’ own paper mill in South India, producing sheets of exceptional strength and durability, with a neutral pH (acid free). All sheets are internally sized and the 210gsm and all heavier sheets are also surface (tub) sized with gelatine, providing a perfect surface for watercolour painting and all other media (gesso or acrylic priming recommended if using oil paints).

Rough surfaced papers have a natural felt texture; smooth papers are cold pressed between zinc sheets. See our Gallery page for examples of work by professional artists on these papers and their comments.
